South Miami Private Buses

Whether you're traveling to South Florida for pleasure or business, if you are traveling by air you will likely be taking an airport shuttle or other private bus to get to and from the airport. You may also be using private buses to get to and from rental car destinations, hotels, or you may be relying on private buses to get around while you are traveling in South Florida. If you are in a collision in South Miami or anywhere in South Florida involving one of these vehicles, it can be very terrifying. You may not know where to turn and if you're from out of town you may not even know which medical facilities to turn to for medical help.

Our attorneys have more than six decades of combined experience helping plaintiffs who have been involved in private bus, school bus, and other traffic accident collisions get compensation for their injuries.

Why Do Shuttle And Private Bus Collisions Happen In South Miami And South Florida?

There are many reasons why private bus and airport shuttle collisions occur. Some of the more common reasons include:

  • Driver error
  • Other motorists
  • Distracted driving
  • Drunk driving
  • Mechanical failure
  • Poorly maintained shuttle buses and private buses
  • Poor road design
  • Road construction
  • Weather conditions
  • Poor visibility
  • Speeding

It is important to get answers about what caused your collision. If recklessness caused a collision you may be eligible for compensation that can help you pay for your damages and losses. Speak to a personal injury attorney if you would like answers as well as compensation. A personal injury attorney can investigate the causes of the accident and can build a strong case for you so that you can pursue compensation in civil court if you qualify.

The Dangers of Private Bus Collisions

Private bus accidents can be especially dangerous for passengers. In many cases, passengers are not wearing their seatbelts or are standing in the bus at the time of the collision. In addition, private buses generally transport heavy luggage as well as passengers. In the event of a crash, the luggage can become airborne and can cause serious head injuries as well as other life-threatening injuries to passengers.

The larger size and weight of private buses can make them especially susceptible to rollovers while the size and force of the bus can cause more serious collision when compared with a passenger car. For all of these reasons, customers who have been injured in a private bus accident often find themselves facing serious and severe injuries after a collision. In these cases, it is important for patients to consult with a personal injury attorney to make sure that they explore all their options for seeking fair compensation that can help cover more of their medical bills, lost wages, and other expenses.
